How well do you tolerate fear? Being undeterred by fear is a characteristic of high-performing chiropractors.
Fear prompts many to avoid the truth. We talk too much, preventing others from expressing a contrarian view. We neglect to ask questions for fear that what we learn will shake our confidence or catch us unprepared. We refuse to take post X-rays for fear that chiropractic is merely a philosophy that doesn't produce real change. We claim we're too busy to call a new patient after the first visit for fear that we won't like what they have to say. We tolerate incompetency among team members, fearful that someone new will be worse. We fail to discuss the dismissal process in advance, fearing it will jinx patient follow through.
